    Words Cannot Describe...

    I remember the first time scuffing my wheel and the feeling! At least yours are a single colour and not the two tone! Hopefully not to expensive to repair... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Is there a way to find out the full extent of what my car has/doesn't have?

    For options etc. You should have a sticker in your book pack. That has a series of codes which are options / features on the car - should help get you started. Otherwise I *think* there is one in the spare tyre well somewhere? For features of MMI etc. Dig around this sub, or the manual is...

    Maximum Load on Factory Fit Towbar

    Lots of variables depending on engine, body, transmission, suspension, trim. It will be on load plate in the drivers door area. If you want to know before getting car it should be displayed in expanded engine details on the configurator. Click on the (i) next to engine then show all...

    Lego

    Not a great picture but using the R9800 (42100) to grab bricks and load hopper on aggregate sorter (42055 model B) - very cool and fun to do! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Lego

    Ditto - working through building it now. It’s a beast, had no idea it had so many motors and 2 control units! An owner needs shares in AA batteries for it! Started off my converting my bucket wheel excavator to the aggregate processor. Took way longer than I expected, but envision being able...

    VC maps not full screen

    I had some bugs with the arrow in the large dials from time to time. If changing the dial size does not resolve, have you tried hard-rebooting the MMI (push silver Nav / Radio buttons toward screen and press down on jog wheel)? If you have the new B9.5 sans MMI controls sorry I am not sure of...

    Facelift Warranty repair to A/C digital display

    Had a fault with mine where one of the lines of pixels failed, turned all white and then corrupted further as you brushed your finger over the metal switches to animate the screen. Mine was at the bottom too, not overly obvious as some failures I’ve seen...

    Buyer Dilemma - what would you do ?

    What’s more important to you? Tech Pack and VC is a nice combination IMO and would get my vote over a sunroof personally. Interior LED was real nice on my B9 as I hate bright things causing glare on my glasses. I had it set to a nice red hue which did not reflect as much. White LEDs just...

    Bye for now!

    Enjoy the switch! Mrs has a Seat Arona on lease and that thing is fantastic to drive! DSG is smoother and more responsive then A4 was, and when in sport mode it does shift considering it’s a 1.0L 3-cyl. Agree that they are not as huge step down from the Audi as one likes to think - more so...

    So long and thanks for all the fish

    Thanks all, this is a pleasant place to be so will stop by occasionally or pop in if I can help someone with a question! @WarwickBoy - I believe the newer models and e+ are now better at motorway speeds and struggle less with more powerful motors. Did not have any concerns on motorways with...

    So long and thanks for all the fish

    After 3 years to the day, and 93,000 miles - I had my final farewell to my trusty B9. Certainly had plenty of memories / experiences with it over the years and has been a solid workhorse. The great: - MMI is fantastic, and I am yet to come across any other system which comes close in terms of...

    Decisions, decisions...

    Just caught up on this after some time and looks like quite the journey! Sorry to hear about your change in circumstances cuke2u - However I am sure you will make the best of it! I think you'd do well either way. These B9's could hold some good residual value with the low tax, technology and...

    Facelift Adaptive Cruise Retrofit

    Ah! Sorry my bad, a B9.5 facelift version - were not aware they came as standard now. I did see a picture on the Audi configurator with that on without specifying the Driver assist but put it down to a bug! It should be technically possible then. Perhaps a little too soon for any software /...

    Facelift Adaptive Cruise Retrofit

    Are you sure you have the radar sensors? As they are only fitted with Driver Assist - Tour pack AFAIK? There are 2, on the left and right lower vents of the front bumper and are domed shaped. The windscreen camera does the front assist on cars without Driver Assist, along with pedestrian...

    Company Car (A4) or take the money and run...

    I guess the £5k must be the Diesel penalty. My 2.0 TFSI almost loaded (just shy of £38k) is £4,100 pa. Agree that with mileage it becomes better value. I average around 31k pa - also do more travelling in the UK to take advantage. At the moment hoping that the new VW Passat makes it onto my...

    Company Car (A4) or take the money and run...

    Pretty much down to personal circumstances and how much running your own car will cost you. Mine is up in October, and will be in same quandary. It’s almost getting to point where it’s a moot point of owning a co. car vs. private. Some things to consider. - The govt have not committed to...

    Audi A4 2016 Avant sound amplifier location and wiring

    Not 100% sure, but after a loud listening session there is a fan noise from the glovebox, can only assume the amp is behind or part of the MMI box in the glovebox.
